Antimicrobial Use (AMU) and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) are current issues affecting both human and animal health. Antimicrobials are still effective for treating, controlling and/or preventing disease. They have also been used to improve animal production or growth and help to protect animal welfare. However, every time they are used, there is the potential to select for resistant bugs, ultimately making the drugs less and less effective.
